UK Conferences

Partners in Care



This series of conferences is looking at how all healthcare providers and commissioners can improve patient care by working together as partners in care. Each event will welcome local, regional and national keynote speakers who will examine issues relating to clinical quality, nursing roles and care initiatives.



On 7 February 2011 we held our first landmark conference, in partnership with Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.



This was followed by a second conference on 26 April in Birmingham hosted by and in partnership with Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.



Our most recent conference was held on 2 May in Ipswich alongside University Campus Suffolk.



Patients Association Vice President, Angela Rippon, opened each conference and welcomed keynote speakers including:

  • Carol Auchterlonie - Director of Outcomes and Learning, Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
  • Professor David Oliver - National Clinical Director for Older People, Department of Health
  • Sir Stephen Moss - Ex Chair Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust
  • Dame Christine Beasley CBE, DBE Chief Nursing Officer, Department of Health
  • Kathryn Hudson, Deputy Ombudsman, Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
  • Deborah Westhead, Acting Regional Director, Care Quality Commission
  • Katherine Murphy, Chief Executive, Patients Association
